Happy Christmas

December 25, 2006

to you all.

My thoughts as usual.

1. Phillips SHP 805 headphones. Alexy’s. Since I discovered them, the poor guy had to literally fight with me each time to actually listen to something. So I got out this weekend and with some support from my roommates I finally bought them. (finding them was tough). 1150 bucks of pure blissful sound*. So my friend, here is my unplanned christmas gift to you, your right to listen to music on your headphones any time you wish 🙂

2. Another great christmas gift that I saw presented: Gifting each other a chance to actually meet each other in person. After a year or so. Top that!

3. So why does VH1 show all that reality bullsh*t? They are so good when they actually play music. Whatever happened to storytellers? Infact, VH1 Classic is the best that TV offers nowadays imo. Why do they need “Pimp my Ride”?

4. Tina Turner discovered! 🙂 “What’s love got to do with it?” and especially “We don’t need another hero”. My incredible ignorance in music is only matched by the happiness I feel when I think about the infinitely large musicscape left for me to explore. 🙂

5. Motorcycle diaries is a great movie. Watch it somehow. Please.

6. This whole, numbered list thing is working so well**. Why ever did I not think of it earlier? And yes, I am trying to hold that story in my mind, while trying to get to sit still with a pen and paper in hand.

*If any audiophiles are around, suggest me good headphones below 2k (If you think SHP805 is not the best one available) and I will be eternally grateful. I am not into ear/canal phones,Too risky for hearing according to a good friend. And ya, sennheizers at Apple showroom are a bit too hot to handle.

**No chalams about whole numbers please.

Some interesting things

1. 12 degrees cold = white knuckles when riding

2. 11 pm to 1 pm is a good time for TV(Atleast yesterday): Powerpuff girls, Dexter, Courage the cowardly dog, VH1 Classic hour etc

3. Vodafone and Reliance compete for Hutch.

4. I lust for a UMPC (maybe, look at the battery life: See the Russian link )

5. I lust for a dual core. (Core 2 Duo and Core Duo are almost same now? Office PC is Pentium D)

6. I badly want to write a story. One is brewing and dangerously taking up mindshare.

7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (I am not a big fan, but some of my close friends are crazy about these books. And ya, its the 7th book, and 7th in this list, etc.. )

8. I over-laugh at jokes now. Is that bad?

Revived!

I haven’t been getting time enough to read other’s blog. So where would I get time to write.

Anyway:

1. Sandman series by Neil Gaiman is very good. I mean, very good story-telling through comics.

2. Transmetropolitan written by Warren Ellis is great comics, describing and criticizing the futuristic world which it is set in. The best part is, you can see the glimpses of now in this world. It strongly reminds one of The invisibles, which it is not. Which is a totally different beast.

3. Wow, I have been reading comics more than books nowadays.

4. The elitist bastard and long time friend is getting married!

5. I am drowned in the C of code.

6. I gloriously wrote zero words for this Nanowrimo. That’s right, absolute loser me.
